It can take a healthy couple several months of trying for a baby before becoming pregnant, so please try not to worry if things haven’t happened for you yet.
So many factors affect fertility, but over the last fifteen years of working with clients, I have seen how lifestyle and nutritional changes, plus stress reduction, can improve overall health and make a difference - and in some cases that can mean THE difference!

Can reflexology enhance your fertility?
TYPES OF INFERTILITY
The term infertility is used when conception hasn’t occurred after 12 months of trying for a baby...
You may have had tests showing that there is nothing wrong with either you or your partner and have been told that you have ‘unexplained infertility’.
Or you may already have a child, but are finding it much more difficult to conceive this time around - commonly known as ‘secondary’ infertility.
Hormonal imbalance conditions (including PCOS and endometriosis) can be implicated in female factor infertility, as well as physical abnormalities - such as blocked fallopian tubes or scar tissue - which may be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease.
Male factor infertility may be caused by sperm issues (either a low count or morphology/motility issues), a physical abnormality or damage caused by illness or medical treatment.

Causes of Infertility
The ability to conceive is dependant on many factors but is more likely to happen if you and your partner are in good health. The effects of modern life can have a significant impact on health and therefore on fertility too. Do you recognise the following patterns of behaviour in yourself or your partner?
- Work-related stress
- High alcohol intake
- ‘Binge’ drinking
- Erratic eating (skipping meals)
- Poor diet/'convenience' foods
- Being over-weight
- Being under-weight
- Long working hours/shift work
- Long-haul travel
- Excessive/not enough exercise

Stress and Infertility
The anxiety over fertility issues can add significantly to your stress levels and you may have become trapped in a cycle of expectation and disappointment every month...
It is very common to feel isolated and get upset when you find out that friends, family members or work colleagues have become pregnant.
You probably feel despondent and think that it will never happen for you. These are all perfectly normal emotions, so please don’t feel guilty and try to be kinder to yourself.
It may seem like everything is a struggle right now, but how would you like to let go of the worry for a while - and possibly enhance your fertility at the same time?
I believe that the relaxation provided by reflexology sessions, practicing self-care and sensible lifestyle choices, have played a crucial part in the positive outcomes I have seen.

Hormonal Imbalance and Infertility
Reflexology treatments seem to have a very positive effect on balancing hormone levels...
Feedback from those attending for regular sessions has shown the following improvements :
- Regulation of the menstrual cycle
- Re-establishment of the menstrual cycle for those with amenorrhoea - usually after long-term contraceptive pill use
- Reduction in PMS symptoms - including bloating and irritability
- Less discomfort for those with dysmenorrhea
- Reduction in pain caused by endometriosis
- A more condensed menstrual flow

Can Reflexology enhance your Fertility?

Reflexology works in a subtle way on a physical and emotional level and is especially beneficial for those struggling with fertility issues.
The calming and soothing effects of reflexology will gently relieve stress and tension and could be a crucial first step in ‘letting go’...
I believe that any emotional blockages need to be addressed and perhaps lifestyle adjustments made, to allow you to move forward.
Reflexology may also:
- Enhance your body's own natural healing abilities
- Encourage all body systems to function efficiently
- Assist in the elimination of toxins from the body
Plenty of time will be allowed to explore lifestyle choices during your consultation and a treatment plan will be devised.
Are you are going through fertility investigations, or about to embark upon an Assisted Conception programme?
I know it might feel as if you are on an emotional roller coaster, but reflexology sessions will encourage you to stay calm and positive through the ups and downs of your treatment.
As your therapist, I’m here to provide a‘ listening ear’ and emotional support throughout your journey...

Reflexology can be particularly beneficial in the time leading up to egg collection and embryo transfer. Sessions will encourage deep relaxation and help ease anxiety.
This may help reduce stress hormones, which could improve your chances of success.
